Brad Zarnett

Founder of the Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series

Brad’s goal is to build knowledge and cooperation among sustainability advocates. His vision is to effect change towards a more sustainable business model. Brad founded the Toronto Sustainability Speaker Series (TSSS) in 2008 and has hosted more than 40 events during that time. Shortly after its launch, TSSS emerged as Canada’s premiere forum for regular dialogue and problem solving among sustainability professionals. The events provided a place where sustainability change agents could exchange ideas and delve into trends, risks and opportunities that are presented by our shifting business model. Now in its 10th year, TSSS has found that it can better influence change by supplementing its live events with its vast media network and acting as a social media influencer.  Brad is considered a “tribal” leader in the Canadian sustainability movement; he is a connector of people and ideas. Brad has a Masters in Environmental Studies from York University in Toronto and regularly writes and speaks on the topic of corporate sustainability.
